Is there an iPhone App that will allow you to plan a route and then transfer it to an iPhone?

    Do you mean so the phone will tell you which way to go and guide you along your chosen route??

    I'd like one also, they are great to get you from a-b. but not follow a route,,

    I just recently found one for android, maybe it has an iphone version - the website is ride with gps & then the app is cue sheet.

    I stick one earphone in and put the phone in my back pocket so I can hear the directions. Pressing the power button on the phone replays the last direction, which is useful for reassuring yourself that you've not got lost.

    The only drawbacks - the voice can be a bit difficult to understand at times and it doesn't reroute if you miss a direction. Once you know that you get used to listening carefully to the directions and replaying them if it's been quiet for a while.

    It was on sale when I got it so the app only cost a couple of quid - an absolute bargain in my opinion.

    OK, not perfect, but it will help me to stay on less busy roads. Look here: http://www.gpsies.com. You can plot a route and then view it on an iPhone showing your position.
